The Night and the Silent Water

Композиция The Night and the Silent Water из альбома Opeth — Morningrise

Музыка: Микаэль Окерфельдт, Петер Линдгрен
Стихи: Микаэль Окерфельдт

And so you left us
Jaded and gaunt, some September
Wilted with the seasons
But hidden inside the delusion

I saw you eyes somewhere

Devoid of death
The aura poises amidst the storm
In solid tears I linger
A parlour glade, moonlit sorrow

Lonely resting pools
Relics of the moon-dogged lake
Whisper: All your words are missgiven

Am I like them?
Those who mourn and turn away
Those who would give anything
To see you again
If only for another second

Your face was like the photograph
Painted white, we did not speak very often about it
What does it matter now? What does it matter now?

Cloak of autumn shroud
I gaze, dim ricochet of stars
I reckon it is time for me to leave

You sleep in the light
Yet the night and the silent water
Still so dark
